Fourth of July Commission
City of Milwaukee Fourth of July festivities are postponed for 2020 because of the current pandemic. Activities, including parades, picnics, and fireworks that were scheduled to take place in parks around the city, will resume in 2021.
"After 40 plus years of being involved in the 4th of July celebration this is a tough decision but the only right one," Fourth of July Commission Chair, Cheryl Cieciwa said. "We are disappointed we will not be gathering with our friends and neighbors to celebrate the 4th this year, but we look forward to resuming this cherished Milwaukee tradition in 2021."
Since 1911, the City of Milwaukee has provided its citizens, neighbors and visitors a safe and friendly celebration of America’s independence.
In parks throughout the city, families and friends gather for picnics, games, bicycle and doll buggy parades and talent contests. At night the sky is filled with fireworks bursting all over town.
2020 Theme: America the Beautiful
